Software Engineering Intern
This program is for students who will be graduating in December 2018 or Spring 2019.
We’d love for you to learn, grow, and have the time of your life with us in an internship at The Grid. Our 90-day summer program provides you with the ability to work on fun and challenging projects that make a real impact on our customers, code, products, and revenue. You’ll develop and apply skills that will impact your career in a meaningful way. You’ll have the opportunity to hang out with and get advice and mentorship from our executives, both inside and outside the office. You’ll participate in fun intern outings, and learn what it means to work at a culture-first company through our focus on being Happy, Humble, Hungry, and Honest. We provide you with a competitive wage, free lunch every day, mentorship, and the possibility of future employment.
What you’ll do
You will have the opportunity to work closely with our technical teams to solve complex computer science problems, develop scalable, distributed software systems and also collaborate on critical customer-facing systems. You’ll be learning from and working with experienced engineers on industry-best practices, utilizing cutting-edge technology.
